Mental Health Awareness Month

Since the pandemic, we have all gone through a great amount of changes including: disrupted schedules, lack of interactions, and losing loved ones which has affected the mental health of millions.

Take part in mental health awareness month by doing the following:
        1. Take care of yourself. Be aware of how you are feeling and seek treatment.
        2. Check up on your loved ones to provide support and encouragement.

            Too often people do not seek treatment because discussing mental health is not normalized.
